Subject Re: [email] embed/include dynamic Java Server Pages content in email/NTLM Authentication to Exchange Server
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 08:09:36 GMT
Hi Ferindo,

some thoughts along the line

1) all email related libraries I'm aware of are using javax.mail. So you 
have to get the NTLM authentication working on this level. The last 
problem you had is related to the SSL certificate being used by your 
exchange server - please see for more 

2) regarding JSP integration - your observation is correct since we 
provide no direct JSP integration and we never will. But I pretty much 
assume that you will run into 1) quickly with all JSP taglibs you find 
on Google. Having said that you can always reconsider moving the mail 
functionality out of the presentation layer into a domain servcice or 
application service layer (where it might belong - remember the SQL 
taglibs running SQL queries from a JSP page)

So have a look at 1) and keep us/me in the loop ... :-)

Thanks in advance

Siegfried Goeschl
